Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) Market Assessment
Service oriented architecture (SOA) components help corporations integrate their existing data and applications into new business systems. SOA software components allow customers to more quickly react to changing market conditions by using process models to design and build more flexible applications.
SOA provides a flexible application framework for managing changing business needs. Services oriented applications are positioned to unlock the business portfolio by providing adapters that connect to output nodes and an engine to manage the adapters. Adapters are reusable pieces of code that implement Web services (SOA) to achieve automated information access. Benefits are achieved by accessing applications in a portfolio with discrete services.
